(via)
Heptune presents: Button Up Your Overcoat (DeSylva, Brown, Henderson) Transcribed from vocals by Helen Kane, recorded 1/30/1929, from the musical "Follow Through," From Helen Kane, the Original 'Boop-Boop a-Doop' Girl: Great Original Performances 1928 - 1930; Robert Parker's Classic Years in Digital Stereo, Louisiana Red Hot Records, RPCD-323, Photograph of Helen Kane CD. Listen, big boy, Now that you got me made, Goodness, but I'm afraid, Somethin's gonna happen to you! Listen, big boy, You gotta be hooked, and how, I would die if I should lose you now! Button up your overcoat, When the wind is free, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Eat an apple every day, Get to bed by three, Oh, take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Be careful crossing streets, ooh-ooh, Cut out sweets, ooh-ooh, Lay off meat, ooh-ooh, You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum! Wear your flannel underwear, When you climb a tree, Oh, take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Button up your overcoat, When the wind is free, Oh, take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Boop-boop-a-doop! When you sass a traffic cop, Use diplomacy; Just take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Beware of frozen ponds, ooh-ooh, Stocks and bonds, ooh-ooh, Peroxide blondes, ooh-ooh, You'll get a pain and ruin your bankroll! Keep the spoon out of your cup, When you're drinking tea, Oh, take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Don't sit on hornet's tails, ooh-ooh! Or on nails, ooh-ooh! Or third rails, ooh-ooh! You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum! Keep away from bootleg hooch When you're on a spree, Oh, take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Transcribed from vocals by Ruth Etting, recorded March 11, 1929, From Ruth Etting, Living Era, Academy Sound and Vision, Ltd., CD AJA 5008. Listen, big boy, Now that I've got you made, Goodness, but I'm afraid, Something's going to happen to you; Listen, big boy, You've got me hooked, and how, I would die if I should lose you now! Button up your overcoat, When the wind is free, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Oh, eat an apple every day, Get to bed by three, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Be careful crossing streets, ooh-ooh, Don't eat meats, ooh-ooh, Cut out sweets, ooh-ooh, You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum! Keep away from bootleg hooch When you're on a spree, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Don't step on hornet's tails, ooh-ooh! Or on nails, ooh-ooh! Or third rails, ooh-ooh! You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum! Oh, button up your overcoat, When the wind is free, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Oh, wear your flannel underwear, When you climb a tree, Take good care of yourself, You belong to me! Steer clear of frozen ponds, ooh-ooh, Peroxide blondes, ooh-ooh, Stocks and bonds, ooh-ooh, You'll get a pain, ruin your bankroll!
